With summer vacation officially winding down and another year of school returning nationwide, there’s a lot for parents to do in a short amount of time. To help make the transition back to the classroom, whether virtual or in-person, seamless, today we announced our Back to School campaign, connecting busy parents to all their essential Back To School needs, from school supplies to healthy, on-the go snacks to personal care items.
Just in time for the school year, we conducted a national survey that found 90% of parents are likely to forget at least one Back To School item, with two-thirds of parents saying back to school shopping is stressful. To help ease parents’ stress of buying all the right things and to welcome students back to the classroom, today we unveiled the “Welcome BackPack” giveaway nationwide of 5,000 free backpacks. These custom backpacks are equipped with everything parents need to start the school year off right including Albertsons exclusive O Organics® snacks like Animal Cookies, Popcorn, Apple Juice, and Fruit Punch, The Honest Company Hand Sanitizer, new KIND Thins bars, face mask, eraser, ruler, pencil case, highlighter, pens, and pencils.
To enter, all you need to do is tell us your most forgotten school supply on Twitter with #DashToSchool + #Entry starting 8/23/21 at 10:00am PT. Be sure to follow @DoorDash on Twitter and look for our announcement post for more detail!
For those that miss the chance to score one for free, starting September 5, the Welcome Back Packs will also be available for purchase in select markets from DashMart for $15.99 in nearly 20 US markets including Chicago, Phoenix, Dallas, Philadelphia, Seattle, Nashville, Tampa, Columbus, Sacramento, and Denver.
Additional highlights from the nationwide survey include:
We hope DoorDash will be the one stop to get everything needed for back to school, delivered on-demand – happy learning!
